Due to the coronavirus restrictions there was only league tennis in the summer 2021 season. Our aim for 2022 is to enter three mixed doubles teams . The A team will play in the first division. The B team was promoted to the second division at the end of the 2019 season and we decided in 2020 to return to having a C team that would play in the third division. The respective captains are: A team – Pam Whitehead; B team Pam Mueller; C team Jean Hall.
Bradford and District Tennis Association
In 2019 our ladies team won promotion to the top division of the Bradford District Tennis Association League. Whilst there were no matches in the summer of 2020 and only a limited number of matches in 2021 it is hoped that a full programme will take place in summer 2022. Matches consist of two pairs each playing two sets against their respective opponents. They are usually played on Saturday afternoons. Beccy Bullock captain’s this team.
Lancaster, Morecambe and District Winter Veterans League
We now have two teams in this winter vets league.
